Imagine a steaming cup of tea set outside your door as you arise, a gourmet breakfast with locally grown produce and meats, peppered with stimulating conversation at an elegantly set table . . This is what we found with Peter and Vicki, our gracious hosts. Climb the spiral stairs to finish off your day with a glass of wine, overlooking... More

A very nice BnB - hosts Vicki and Peter were awesome. Old historic Victorian that was ever so slightly modernized so as to meet 21st century expectations of comfort - such as bathrooms. Really nice rooms. Loaded with antiques. Great porch. Breakfast was outstanding - mostly local produce. Hosts are very fine cooks. Right in Lanesboro - has tons to... More

We're so grateful for our gracious hosts, Peter and Vicki. Melissa and I are not regular bed-n-breakfast guests. Peter and Vicki's friendly manner and clear explanations made our three-night stay comfortable and enjoyable. There home and grounds are beautiful and served as a terrific launch point for our bike rides and hikes. Breakfasts were thoughtfully prepared, healthy and delicious. I... More

Peter and Vicki have created an oasis. They have considered every detail and were most gracious hosts! We were extremely comfortable in our room and bed. The food was top notch! We loved The Balcony room! We highly recommend a stay here. We will be back.

What a great place to stay! We stayed in the balcony room and had a wonderful time on our first visit to Lanesboro. Peter and Vicki are awesome hosts. They make you feel like you are old friends staying for a visit. Their recommendations of what to do/see/eat were perfect! The breakfasts were outstanding and they easily accommodated our dietary...

We very much enjoyed our stay! A great weekend and Peter and Vicki are great hosts. Breakfast was fantastic! Really liked Lanesboro. Peter and Vicki were also helpful in telling us what was happening in the area so we could plan our day. We will be back.

I relax just thinking of our delightful Anniversary stay at The Scandinavian Inn in Lanesboro. The gorgeous scenery on our drive down from the Twin Cities and the beauty of the area enhanced our experience. If you like to bike or hike, this is the place to go! And we also enjoyed the local eating spots (we enjoyed eating at... More

Peter and Vicki made our stay very nice with the exceptional food and their house that has a lot of personality. We've been there before and this time we tried out their new room, "The Loft." Loved it!

The owners, Peter & Vickie, added to our delightful 2 day bike trip to Lanesboro. Their B & B is in a quiet residential area and has many common indoor and outdoor spaces to relax in and enjoy. There's even a piano to play, music to listen to, beautiful décor to admire, and books and magazines to read should any... More

To get a very accurate introduction to the Scandinavian Inn & its innkeepers, go to their website for information, photos & a video. We found the Inn & the innkeepers, Peter & Vicki Torkelson, to be exactly as presented. Their video is highly recommended. We enjoyed reading about the Inn, especially the “For Men Only” entry. We stayed at the... More
